President Barack Obama keeps claiming to be so concerned about the middle class and income inequality. It was reported his 17-day vacation to Hawaii cost the taxpayers more than $4 million. He will probably spend more than $100 million on trips and vacations for him and his family during his eight years as president.

If the average middle class taxpayer had $4 million, he could probably go on vacation for the rest of his life. But then, who would pay for Obama's extravagant lifestyle?
